The Original colour of the Apple IIe

Postby Gurner on Thu Feb 19, 2015 9:02 am

Was looking at the yellowing on the IIe, and after a quick Google Image search, wondered what the brand new colour was exactly like.

Talking about the main case plastics, as opposed to the slightly darker trim and keyboard plastics.

I have a photo in this thread:

...but the colour in those old photos was almost always incorrect, depending on both the shot and who developed it.
In this photo, it almost looks greeny.

This is a hard one to correctly verify. I'm pretty sure they were kind of yellowy to start with, not white (as not the Platinum version).

Any way we could verify the intended, original colour more accurately?
Pics of examples would be ideal.

Yeah - although the RGB code makes it just as much red as green :)

This pic shows the original beige paint master that Apple signed off on from the paint shop - non Pantone.
